Massive-star supernovae found to be major space dust factories
An unaccounted for source of space dust which spawns life in the universe has been identified by an international team of scientists. View News Article (2006-06-09)

NASA's Hubble makes one millionth science observation
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope crossed another milestone in its space odyssey of exploration and discovery. On Monday, July 4, the Earth-orbiting observatory logged its one millionth science observation during a search for water in an exoplanet's atmosphere 1,000 light-years away.  View News Article (2011-07-06)

Hubble shows 'baby' galaxy is not so young after all
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has found out the true nature of a dwarf galaxy that astronomers had for a long time identified as one of the youngest galaxies in the Universe. Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have made observations of the galaxy I Zwicky 18 which seem to indicate that it is in fact much older and much farther away than previously thought. View News Article (2007-10-17)

NASA celebrates Chandra X-Ray Observatory's 10th anniversary
Ten years ago, on July 23, 1999, NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory was launched aboard the space shuttle Columbia and deployed into orbit. View News Article (2009-07-24)

Swedish solar telescope bursts dream barrier
The first pictures from the new Swedish solar telescope on La Palma, Canary Islands, are presented in an article in the prestigious science journal Nature from November 14. The images of the sun are the most detailed ever seen. One of the most sensational discoveries is a previously unknown detailed sunspot structure. The impact of this discovery is now capturing the attention of solar... View News Article (2002-11-18)

Sussex University astronomer takes part in NASA mission
When NASA launches its new orbiting observatory this week, a University of Sussex astronomer will be looking at parts of the universe never seen before. Dr Sebastian Oliver is one of just a handful of UK scientists involved in the largest project for NASA's Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF), which leaves Cape Canaveral on Saturday, August 23. For the next nine months Dr Oliver will help... View News Article (2003-08-20)

Bringing astronomy into sharper focus
Scientists from the University of Cambridge's Astrophysics Group have today (21 June 2002) announced a collaboration with teams based in New Mexico, Puerto Rico and at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington DC to design, install and operate a novel type of astronomical telescope for ultra-high angular resolution observations of stars, galaxies and quasars. The agreement between researchers... View News Article (2002-06-21)

Construction materials for space stations
Antenna and telescope mirrors, walls and partitions for space stations, solar battery panels and even houses on the Moon and on Mars - all this can be achieved with technology developed by Russian scientists in the framework of ISTC projects 2835 and 2836. What is more, it can be achieved quickly, with good levels of strength and reliability, with minimal expense of time, space, energy and money. View News Article (2005-03-03)

Asteroid Hunting
A lot of attention has been paid in recent years to the asteroid threat issue. The International Asteroid Patrol has been set up to monitor the flight of potentially dangerous celestial rocks in visual diapason. However, the accuracy of optical methods for determining the trajectory leaves much to be desired. That accounts for inaccuracy of numerous forecasts predicting the date when the space...
